West Burton is a bit of a find, an attractive village with a large green, village shop and pub just where Bishopdale merges with Wensleydale.

The Fox and Hounds is right on the green, opening at 9.00am to serve walkers, cyclists and less active tourists (photos 2 & 3). Inside there is a low beamed bar and a separate dining room. Meals are available lunchtimes and evenings and there are six letting rooms. Live sport is popular and there is a choice of two TVs. Cask beers are from Theakstons and Black Sheep.

The pub faces West Burton Obelisk, a market cross in the shape of a church spire, and the village stocks (photo 1).

Close by is the charming village waterfall, once painted by Turner.
